Wow! This was INCREDIBLE! A phenomenal follow-up to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I thought there might be some let down, cause the first good was so good, but Played With Fire might be better! Still the police/mystery thriller is not my favorite genre, but Larsson has created stories that just suck you in from the beginning.
One thing that I'm wary of however... The end of Dragon Tattoo clearly leads into Played With Fire. And the end of Played With Fire is almost like a cliffhanger into The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest. Considering that Larsson died while the 4th book was an outline and while he was planning 10 books, I'm afraid there won't be any really ending to the next book.
But that won't stop me from reading it as soon as I get my hands on it.
